Well, my intent is to print a packet of Usenet maps to hand out at
Wednesday night's 50th UNIX Anniversary event in Seattle. I have 15
copies and a link to the PDF file on stargatemuseum.org
. If possible,
I'd like to add 1 or 2 or 3 of these graphical maps to the packet.
It would also be helpful to have an archived copy of the full UUCP map.
Stan Barber sent me one some time ago but I misplaced it, and it's not
coming to his fingertips either. That would obviously be a project for
later, not a paper handout, but to save on the museum web site.
However, doing a graphical map based on the UUCP map, or even a Usenet
map after 1987, would likely produce a completely black piece of paper :)

Thank you, Grant!
I have added these to the archive on
. I will
add images from Henry as well.
I'm doing some digging on this. I'm curious to learn how the data
gets used. My intention, if possible, is to take the most recent data
from the UUCP mapping project (currently September '98) and see if
it's possible to build updated data sets to generate maps from. }:-)
I'm guessing that the data from the #N, #O, and #L lines will help
with this. :-D
I do see multiple blank #L lines in the data I'm looking at. Maybe it
will be possible to extract something from the #P lines and convert it
to pseudo #L lines that can be used. }:-)
